Mercurial is a version control system, much like SVN and Git. A decentralized approach makes it easy to use any remote or local repository server.

Install OS X

Download the Mercurial package and install.


Open a terminal window and use the hg command to execute actions.


To fetch a project from Bitbucket try:

hg clone
<enter user and password>
ls deathmatchjs

After a while, to update the project:

hg pull
hg update

Or the short form:

hg -u pull

After making changes, commit your revisions and merge with the revision on the repository server.

hg commit -m "Changed the font size"
hg merge
<enter user and password>
